All the persuasion by director Ayan Mukherjee to rope in Katrina Kaif opposite Ranbir Kapoor in his next directorial venture (his first being Wake Up Sid) has come to naught. Katrina has politely turned down the offer citing the reason that she doesn’t have dates to spare.
The lady is going to be busy working with her ex flame and box office’s current blank cheque Salman Khan in director Kabir Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger. After this YRF film with Salman, she will shoot for another YRF film with Shahrukh Khan.
However, producer Karan Johar, who is producing Mukherjee’s film with Ranbir, hasn’t lost heart over not being able to work with Katrina so far. He first tried signing her on for Dostana 2 but the film’s future still looks uncertain. His second attempt to rope in Kat for Mukherjee’s film too has come a cropper due to unavailability of dates.
However, we now hear that Karan Johar plans to approach Katrina Kaif again for another film to be directed by the Kurbaan director Rensil D’Silva next year. Katrina is believed to have expressed her interest in the project and need we mention that it would most likely star Salman Khan, and not Ranbir, opposite her.
Salman Khan seems to top Katrina’s priority nowadays.
